Occasionally we have the opportunity to get involved in unique properties well outside the mountains of western North Carolina. This ten acre island home on the coast is one such case. It all starts with the land. This is “Hunter Heath”.
Situated on ten acres stretching from the Intra-Coastal Waterway to a saltwater sound adjacent to North Topsail Beach, NC, this magnificent estate offers quality of living unlike most. North Topsail Island is a laidback coastal town on the Atlantic without a high rise condo building or hotel in sight. Miles of wide beaches are at your fingertips and Hunter Heath has its own private cabana and boardwalk to the sands of the Atlantic Ocean. Hope across the lazy road onto the causeway that leads you to this slice of heaven. Click here for a full length video of the property.
Come through the gated entrance and meander your way along a privately maintained paved road coursing its way through the marshes and maritime forests lush with vegetation and teeming with wildlife. Hunter Heath sits on a private island shared with nine other houses, each one very well done. But this one tops them all. The others all sit on narrow rectangular parcels, stretching from water to water, but Hunter Heath encompasses a broad 1,000’+ feet of frontage on BOTH the Intracoastal Waterway and a private sound. You can search the entire coast of North Carolina and you aren’t likely to find such an expansive property with such water frontage for your enjoyment.
The ten acres of course are flat, as is all the land along the coast. The original builder/developer installed a three hole Par 3 golf course on the ten acres and the tee boxes and greens remain, albeit now out of use. The approach to the house is via a tree lined paved driveway with brick entrance monuments and the view continues past the house to the waterway beyond with its 300′ pier.
The house itself has a full brick exterior making it of low maintenance in a typically high maintenance environment. The new metal roof has extra wide gutters and is built to last. The same goes for the guest space sitting on top a a five bay detached garage. Within the main house, you’ll find it has its own two car garage.
The Main House features five bedrooms, (master on the main with four up) and four full baths and two half baths. A glassed in sunroom off the Master Bedroom give you expansive views of the waterway beyond. Double walk in closets greet you as you step into the elaborate Master Bath with large walk in tiled shower and deep soaking tub. A dream kitchen with not one, but two built in refrigerators with win cooler, double wall ovens make entertaining a breeze whether using the formal dining or large great room area of the oversized covered porch on the rear of the house.

Each of the upper level bedrooms has a private balcony with one on the upper floor having a very large 20′ x 10′ covered porch. These are accessed by a sweeping grand staircase in the foyer. Continuing up to the third level, you’ll find a huge game room and entertainment space complete with big screen t.v. and plush seating, pool table, half bath and another view to the waterway.
The detached guest space features a bedroom, full bath, kitchen, great room, loft and large deck overlooking the water. This is all atop a five bay garage. But there is more than meets the eye with this luxurious home.
It is well designed for sustainable living if desired. The house has a full geothermal heating system. The brick exterior adds a level of low maintenance care as well as strength. The acres and acres of sun drenched land are ideal for gardening as well as installation of solar panel arrays. Of course with the Intra Coastal Waterway as your backyard, you have endless opportunity to harvest sustenance from the sea. The entire area is abundant with delicacies from the marshes and ocean. But perhaps one of the greatest strengths is the privacy this property affords. This is on an island accessed from another an island. There is only one way on via the gated entrance other than by boat. For anyone wanting security and exclusion, this property has it.
